Chapter 1104 The Purest Soul

Xu Youning really didn’t know how to answer, so she changed the topic abruptly and asked, “Mumu, are you very concerned about Uncle Yuechuan?”

“Hmm?” Mumu shook his head decisively without thinking. “No!”

Xu Youning breathed a sigh of relief. “Since you aren’t concerned about him, why don’t we…”

She wanted to say, “Why don’t we talk about something else?”

As long as it had nothing to do with Shen Yuechuan’s condition, she could tell Mumu everything.

However, before she could finish her words, Mumu suddenly interrupted Xu Youning and said, “Auntie Youning, I’m more concerned about Sister Yunyun!”

Xu Youning didn’t say anything.

Only then did she remember that Xiao Yunyun liked Mumu very much while they were at the top of the mountain.

Coincidentally, Mumu also liked Yunyun very much. He kept calling her sister in a soft and sweet manner.

Xu Youning clearly realized that there was no way that she could avoid the topic of Shen Yuechuan’s condition.

Since she couldn’t avoid it, she decided to tease the little boy first.

Xu Youning looked at Mumu and said, “Mumu, Yunyun is married to Yuechuan. They have become a family. If you’re concerned about Yunyun, it also means that you’re concerned about Yuechuan!”

Mumu tilted his head and thought for a moment. He then denied Xu Youning’s words directly. “That’s not right!”

“No?”

Xu Youning was more or less surprised.

In her impression, Mumu had always been very firm. He would always take her side and take whatever she stood for as his position, which had never changed.

For the first time, Mumu denied Xu Youning’s words so directly.

The more Xu Youning thought about it, the more curious she became. She couldn’t help asking, “Mumu, what did I say wrong?”

Mumu still tilted his head and looked very cute with a serious look. He said reasonably, “When I was at the top of the mountain, Sister Yunyun told me that everyone is independent, even if they get married! Therefore, I’m concerned about Sister Yunyun, but it has nothing to do with Uncle Yuechuan at all. Humph!”

Xu Youning looked at Mumu’s posture. The little boy seemed to be defending his position to the end.

She had a hunch that she couldn’t defeat this little boy in their discussion.

Xu Youning could only wear a considerate look. She nodded, stroked Mumu’s head, and suddenly set up a trap for the little boy. “I get that. You just don’t want to admit that you care about Yuechuan, don’t you?”

No matter what question Xu Youning asked, Mumu always answered everything without reservation.

As soon as he heard Xu Youning’s question, Mumu nodded defenselessly and gave Xu Youning a very positive answer. “That’s right!”

Sure enough, the boy just didn’t want to admit it.

Xu Youning stroked Mumu’s head a few times and showed a satisfied smile.

Mumu immediately noticed that there was something wrong with Xu Youning’s smile.

“Hmm?” He was confused. After staring at Xu Youning and thinking for a while, he finally realized that he had been tricked by her.

“Auntie Youning, this is not cool!” The little boy protested, holding Xu Youning’s thigh persistently and shaking it back and forth. It seemed that he was trying to express something.

Xu Youning knew the little boy very well.

She knew better than anyone that Mumu wasn’t trying to express anything.

He didn’t expect that she would expose what he was thinking, and the little boy just felt embarrassed.

Xu Youning grabbed Mumu’s hand and hugged him. She smiled and said, “Okay now. Don’t get nervous. I won’t tell Yuechuan.”

Mumu blinked and said, “It’s a deal. You can’t go back on your word!”

Xu Youning imitated Mumu and promised him with a pinky swear.

She didn’t mention Shen Yuechuan’s condition at all. She thought that after such a scene, Mumu would slowly forget what he had asked just now.

It turned out that Xu Youning had underestimated Mumu.

After making a pinky swear with Xu Youning, the little boy pursed his lips and changed the subject. “Auntie Youning, you haven’t answered my question yet!”

Xu Youning was stunned and knew that her wishful thinking had failed.

She couldn’t help but sigh. “So there’s no way that I could avoid talking about this.”

Seeing that Xu Youning didn’t speak for quite a while, Mumu looked more and more confused.

He stared at her and cautiously asked, “Auntie Youning, is there something that you can’t tell me?”

“No.” Xu Youning subconsciously denied it. In order to cover up her guilty conscience, she continued, “Mumu, I just… don’t know how to tell you.”

Mumu tilted his head and thought for a moment. Then, he acted like an adult again and said word by word, “Just tell me!”

Xu Youning was impressed by Mumu’s quick thinking. She couldn’t help smiling and said, “Mumu, in fact… I’m not very clear about Yuechuan’s physical condition.”

“Huh?” Mumu was a little disappointed. He fiddled with his fingers and said in a low voice, “I thought you knew.”

“I’m sorry.” Xu Youning shook her head apologetically. “Your daddy doesn’t allow me to inquire about Yuechuan. I don’t know anything about him.”

“What? Do you mean that Daddy knows about Uncle Yuechuan’s situation?” Mumu was about to jump up as he talked. “I’ll ask Daddy about it then!”

“You can’t do that.” Xu Youning grabbed Mumu and told him seriously, “Your daddy will be mad.”

“I know that Daddy will be very angry…” Mumu pursed his lips, lowered his head, and said, “But I really want to know how Uncle Yuechuan is doing…”

Seeing Mumu like this, Xu Youning couldn’t bear to disappoint the little boy.

It just so happened that she knew what kind of answer Mumu was looking forward to.

She couldn’t bear what Shen Yuechuan was suffering for him, but she could picture a beautiful scene on his behalf.

Xu Youning smiled and changed the subject. “I can guess Yuechuan’s physical condition!”

“Really?” Mumu’s eyes widened slightly. He suddenly jumped over and grabbed Xu Youning’s hand, his eyes full of expectation. “Auntie Youning, how did you guess it? Can you tell me about it?”

“How did I guess it? It’s a little complicated. You may not understand.” Xu Youning smiled mysteriously and continued, “But I can tell you!”

“Okay. I’m listening!”

Mumu nodded hard and waited seriously for what Xu Youning would say.

Xu Youning analyzed calmly and said, “Think about it. Yuechuan is such a responsible person. If his physical condition had not improved, he would not have agreed to marry Yunyun. Since he is married to her, it means that he must have started getting better, and he will recover soon!”

Rather than a guess, it was more like an expectation of Xu Youning.

In fact, Xu Youning knew the truth better than anyone else. It was very likely that the reality was the opposite of what she had guessed.

Shen Yuechuan’s condition might have reached an irredeemable level.

It was very likely that Xiao Yunyun had requested for the wedding on the first day of the New Year because she didn’t want Shen Yuechuan to have any regrets in the last days of his life.

This was in line with Xiao Yunyun’s character and style.

Shen Yuechuan was a perfectionist. He would not allow himself to return to the hospital the day after his wedding, but Yunyun would not mind that.

Judging from the persistence of Yunyun for Yuechuan, Xu Youning could conclude that to Xiao Yunyun, it didn’t matter how she and Yuechuan would go through the crisis after getting married.

She just wanted to be a legitimate couple with Yuechuan.

In this world, some people would take their feelings more important than anything else.

Thinking of this, Xu Youning couldn’t help smiling. She didn’t know whether she was comforting Mumu or herself.

It was undeniable that Xu Youning’s answer fully met Mumu’s expectations for Shen Yuechuan.

After hearing Xu Youning’s words, the little boy jumped up excitedly and looked at her with bright eyes. “Auntie Youning, is it true?”

Xu Youning didn’t blush or feel embarrassed. Instead of answering, she asked, “Mumu, think about it – when did I ever lie to you?”

“I don’t need to think about it!” Mumu blinked his eyes and suddenly said, “You did lie to me!” Then, he fiddled with his fingers and said, “But this time, I believe you!”

Xu Youning was amused by the little boy. She touched his head and asked, “Why would you choose to believe me this time?”

Mumu thought for a moment and really didn’t know how to explain it to Xu Youning, so he could only correct himself. “In fact, I believe in Uncle Yuechuan.”

The reason why the little boy believed in Xu Youning’s analysis was completely based on his trust in Shen Yuechuan.

He believed that Uncle Yuechuan would take good care of Sister Yunyun.

If he wanted to take good care of someone, the premise was that he had a healthy body.

According to this inference, Mumu firmly believed that Uncle Yuechuan must have recovered.

Therefore, he believed Xu Youning’s words, which was no different from believing in Shen Yuechuan.

After figuring out the little boy’s logic, Xu Youning didn’t know how to react. She didn’t know whether to be sad or glad that the little boy was smart.

Nevertheless, it was already her greatest fortune to successfully cope with the problem he had asked.

Mumu wrapped his arms around Xu Youning’s neck, snuggling his thin body in her arms with a bright smile in his eyes. “Auntie Youning, I’m very happy.”

Xu Youning touched Mumu’s head and looked at him. “Are you happy because Yuechuan has recovered?”

“Yeah!” This time, Mumu didn’t hesitate. He nodded hard and admitted, “As long as Uncle Yuechuan recovers, Sister Yunyun will be happy. I hope that everyone can be happy.”

If it were someone else who said that, Xu Youning might doubt that person’s sincerity.

However, she would never doubt Mumu.

Mumu said that he hoped that everyone would be happy, so that must be what he believed in his heart.

In Xu Youning’s mind, there was no other soul purer than Mumu’s in the world.

This pure soul had a deep blessing for Shen Yuechuan.

She hoped that as Mumu had said, Shen Yuechuan would get better. She also hoped that he would take good care of Yunyun and grow old with her.
